The best way to see Greenwich is with an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide.
Find out about the area’s royal heritage and maritime connections and hear about the Tudor monarchs who made Greenwich their home. Royalty has always had a special place in Greenwich and it still does – the borough became a Royal Borough in 2012.
Or you could ramble around some excellent Greenwich pubs, take a tour of the National Maritime Museum, or book a weekend away with guided tours included. You can even take a tour of the darker side of Greenwich with ghosts and phantoms thrown in.
